Whilst we were being driven around the city in our bus, wherever there was a large space, a square or such like, there would be children practicing routines which, we all thought, were for the Mass Games that happen in October. We were told that they were rehearsing for the 60th Anniversary of the DPRK as they'll be celebrating this before the Mass Games. When we visited the Grand People's Study House, we were allowed outside on the balcony that looks over Kim Il Sung Square and there before us were hundreds, if not thousands, of children rehearsing routines. We stood there watching them perform mass people formations that spelt out Korean words and symbols right in front of us so it was kind of like a free show.
